Little School Boy Hilariously Explains ‘Government Strategy’ To Class Perfectly

Government jokes have been around since the beginning of governments. And honestly, I don’t think folks appreciate how important it is to be able to tell jokes about your government. Not only is it a major free speech right that every human being on the planet should be entitled to, but it also serves other purposes. For example, it can relieve a lot of stress on a populace during hard economic times. It’s hard to imagine how folks made it through the Great Depression without humor. Another thing mocking the government can do for citizens, is point out inefficiencies and issues in a way that doesn’t put people to sleep. This can be very effective when trying to get folks to the polls to vote for changes. In this fictional joke, a teacher assigned her children weekend project, which involved selling something over the weekend. Each student then had to talk about what they sold and their sales strategy.

The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited. Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive salesmanship.

Little Sally led off: “I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30,” she said proudly, “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success.”

“Very good,” said the teacher.

Little Jenny was next:
“I sold magazines,” she said, “I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events.”

“Very good, Jenny,” said the teacher.

Eventually, it was Little Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath.

Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher’s desk. “I made $2,467,” he said.

“$2,467!” cried the teacher, “What in the world were you selling?”

“Toothbrushes,” said Little Johnny.

“Toothbrushes!” echoed the teacher, “How could you possibly sell enough toothbrushes to make that much money?”

“I found the busiest corner in town,” said Little Johnny, “I set up a Dip and Chip stand and gave everybody who walked by a free sample.”

They all said the same thing, “Hey, this tastes like dog crap!”

Then I would say, “It is dog crap. Wanna buy a toothbrush?”

“I used the government’s approach of giving you something crappy for free, and then making you pay to get the taste out of your mouth.”
